Trivia

Homer's imagination of a life of organized crime is based on Don Fanucci's first appearance in The Godfather Part II, accepting donuts rather than a necklace and an orange. See more »

Goofs

The nitrous oxide cylinder at the end of the episode is marked N²O. Chemical formulas use subscript for numbers, at least nowadays (the original Berzeluis notation used superscript and was still used during the first half of the 20th century). See more »

Quotes

Carl: Welcome, brothers of Local 643. As you know, our president, Chuckie Fitzhugh, ain't been seen lately. We're all prayin' he'll turn up soon, alive and well.
[everyone laughs]
Carl: All right, all right. But seriously, we have to vote on Burns' new contract. It's basically the same deal, except we get a free keg of beer for our meetings.
[everyone cheers]
Carl: In exchange for that, we have to give up our dental plan.

Lenny: So long, Dental Plan!

Best by light years of Simpsons at its peak
30 June 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Early Simpsons set a cracking pace, but this one is a freak of nature compared to even the other great episodes...

If you haven't seen it, best to stop reading now and just start watching it.

Not a dud in it or even average work in it... you could watch normal programs for thousands of hours without being treated so well by the TV industry.

I thought 21 years ago the team had for some reason just decided they'd aim for ultimate comedy highs with every 10 seconds of the 22 minutes and I still think that is true!

Ultimate Mr Burns ep. Most laughs per ep.

No Comic Book Guy, but Best Ep(isode) EVER!
